St. Peter School students came to school on Tuesday, March 3, dressed in their pajamas for Dr. Seuss’ birthday party to celebrate Read Across America Day. The younger children picked their favorite Dr. Seuss book to be read to them by their Big Buddies during a school-wide gathering in the cafeteria. Some of the Little Buddies practiced their reading skills as they read their favorite books aloud and their Big Buddies listened.
“Celebrating ‘Read Across America Day’ is about bringing books and kids together,” said Michaela Dwyer, teacher and student council advisor. “Dr. Seuss is the perfect author to help do this because his books have been enjoyed by children of all ages for many years.”
At St. Peter School, the Student Council decided that celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday was the perfect opportunity for students to experience reading in a fun, memorable way and bring the buddies together.
